REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND 2019 OUTLOOK
The sum of all of their money line implied probabilities (adjusted for the juice) projects to 66.8 wins. Their 64 actual wins was below expectation. They met expectations at home, it was on the road that they struggled. They won 32.1% on the road which was much worse than expected (38%). They won 38 at home and were expected to win 36. Our projected record for next season is similar. They are averaging 64 wins per sim and are projected to finish second to last in the American League. There is a sizable gap between them and the #13 ranked White Sox who are projected for 66.5 wins. They are definitely not World Series contenders (less than a 0.1% chance). Their odds of winning it all are 1000/1, 0.1%. Their odds of winning the AL are 500/1, 0.2%. Their chances of making it to the World Series are also basically zero.
